(Miami, FL – February 16, 2016) Celebrity Chef Ingrid Hoffmann has partnered with Barilla, maker of Italy’s #1 pasta brand, in celebrating Latinas’ creativity in the kitchen and passion for new flavors with the launch of its latest campaign, Latino Italian Fusion. Combining two family favorites—Latino flavors and spices and traditional Italian ingredients—Barilla has teamed up with Chef Hoffmann to develop delicious and unique recipes, as part of a video series that perfectly captures el sazón Latino in re-imagined pasta dishes.

“I am excited to be a part of Latino Italian Fusion because it’s a movement that inspires Latinas to be creative with a pantry staple like pasta while remaining true to the ingredients, spices, and flavor combinations they already know and love. Barilla has a variety of pasta shapes to choose from making it super simple for Latinas to create unique pasta dishes whether they are traditional or reinvented, any night of the week,” explains Ingrid Hoffmann.

Ingrid’s recipes include Chicken and Penne Puerto Rican Style, Prosciutto Tallarines Verdes, Veracruz Shrimp Rotini, and Kale Chorizo Lasagna Rollatini, each of which uses Barilla pasta as a blank canvas to infuse the two cuisines.

The how-to video series is available on, where Latinas can also find tips for quick and easy recipes for family dinners and ideas for holiday meals. Inspired by the diversity of Latin cuisine, Barilla is collaborating with premier Latino chefs to develop a roster of Latin-inspired pasta dishes exclusively for Latino Italian Fusion that captures the flavors of Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.
